---William Brooks is being awarded the rank of SCOUT.

Knot of the Week Videos

We still no clear patrol winner for the past 2 Knot of the Week contests. We need more videos to break the tie on BOWLINE and TWO HALF HITCHES. If you want to help your patrol win, all it takes is a 45sec video of you tying the knot correctly. The patrol with the most participation wins an award for their flag.
To record your video, check your email for the login information.

Summer Camp

We are still evaluating options for conducting an alternative Summer Camp program in July. More to come soon.

Service Hours

If you scout needs to complete service hours, have them contact me. There are several outdoor projects that families can complete together on the scout hut property.

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to:

Provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

JOIN as a youth member with Troop 465.

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Jason Norred is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Norred is only our 8th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
